Biodiversity Month - Adaptations of Australian Threatened Species

Taronga Zoo is celebrating Biodiversity Month by bringing schools a series of videoconferences focussing on threatened Australian animals.

Each Friday during September, students will meet a variety of live animals such as gliders, frogs, snakes, lizards, invertebrates and more. Learn about their amazing adaptations and how their features help them survive in extreme environmental conditions. Students will investigate what happens when an animal's environment is altered and what role we all play in protecting them.
